RecentRoll_CloudBurst-15-970x643

I’m closing the pre-order out on these tonight and they will be shipped out on Monday. If you would like one, now’s the time to order one. Thanks to everyone for the support. I’m not making a lot of money off this, I just wanted to fulfill the requests of readers for some of my work.

Scoop a Highway 39 print here at the PiNP Web Shop.

Sorry, still no international orders.

Recent Roll: Portland Randomness
Recent Roll: Portland Randomness

I mostly shot with my Hasselblad in Portland and in fact, I didn’t even remember shooting most of these photos. That’s always the sign of a good time! Check out more Portland randomness below.

The Athletic: Mountain Flyer and Brian Vernor
TheAthletic-02

Jeremy Dunn’s newest endeavor is The Athletic and his first editorial piece is on Mountain Flyer magazine with a few back stories on Brian Vernor. It’s worth checking out, including some photos Jeremy shot during our ride with Vernor back during the ATOC. I need to work with Mr. Dunn more often because while I may be ok at shooting photos of events, he does a great job at the accompanying narrative.

LA Life
Recent Roll: LA Life

If I were forced to move anywhere in the USA tomorrow, It’d be LA. Now saying that, I have to admit, I dislike 75% of the “city” but that 25% is mighty tempting and it’s that percentage that brings me back every few months. Last month, I was actually in town for the Mishka LA opening but managed to sneak in some time on the bike, in the bar and at Golden Saddle Cyclery. Even though I was only there for a few days, I had my fill until next time…

Damian Riehl: A Few Old Dinosaurs

Photo by Damian Riehl

If you follow Damian on his Tumblr, you’ll notice his ability to capture people in very candid poses, almost like they didn’t even realize he had a camera on him. These last few photos of some of the “old dinosaurs”, as he calls them, of Portland are perfect. Head over to his Flickr to check a few more out.

Recent Roll: Mt. Disappointment
Recent Roll: Mt. Disappointment

I love riding in LA. Well, not so much in Los Angeles as the Angeles National Forest. It’s home to the biggest climb in the continental United States (the Crest) and the routes you can take are limitless. From Cloud Burst, to Baldy and Mt. Wilson, meandering through the mountains is where I like to be when I visit LA.

So when Kyle asked me where I wanted to go the last time I was in LA, I told him that I didn’t care. His answer: Mt. Wilson and then Mt. Disappointment. I was game, as was Christian, one of Woody, Ty and Kyle’s employees. It was his first ride ever. While he didn’t go in for the haul up to Mt. Disappointment, he stuck his way up to the top of Mt. Wilson. Our day totalled around 65 miles and over 7,200′ of climbing. It was a blast!

Argonaut Ride
Recent Roll: Argonaut Ride

I didn’t get to spend much time on the road bike while in Portland, but one of the two rides I did was with Ben from Argonaut Cycles, Kyle from Chris King, Souphorse and some fellas from the Jens Voigt Army who have been testing custom Argonaut Frames. We left from Portland and rode to Hood River. I borrowed Billy’s Raleigh Record Ace and we headed out towards Mt. Hood.

The route is arguably one of Oregon’s finest, hitting local favorites like Bull Run, Little Switzerland, and Lolo pass.

 The route took us alongside the river, through the Mt. Hood National Forest, past farms and orchards, before descending into Hood River. We totalled 111 miles and 7,700′ of climbing for the day. Tons of climbing and fun with a great group of guys.

We concluded at a carbon fiber facility just north of Hood River, where Ben from Argonaut has been working on custom carbon frames. There’s more to this story developing, so sit tight, but for now, check out the photos below.

Brenton Salo: Devin Tolman Tire Grab

Photo by Brenton Salo

Brenton is pretty much the man when it comes to shooting FGFS action with film. Need proof? How’s this photo of Devin hitting a tire grab? Connection made, on film. That’s skill on both sides of the lens.

It’s amazing how metal nature can be. These two photos are from a Recent Roll and I’m posting them only to motivate you to get outdoors if you aren’t already.
